Transcript

Generics are not specific to TypeScript. They're a concept used across a number of programming languages. In this module, we'll learn what generics are and how they can be used with functions, interfaces, classes. And then how we can constrain what a generic is. Generics allow us to create code that is reusable over a variety of data types, rather than being restricted to a single one. They help in keeping code clean. And help make us more efficient as developers by allowing us to implement the do not repeat yourself programming principle. They help with type safety, and documentation of our code by making it explicit what the code may be used for. Generics can be applied to many different constructs in our code. Including functions, interfaces, and classes.
